Acting Director General Tim Davie walks out of Sky interview
With the crisis surrounding the BBC showing no signs of abating this morning acting Director General Tim Davie, the former P&G and PepsiCo marketer, has walked out of an interview with Sky News. His speedy exit, as the cameras continued to roll, followed BBC Helen Boaden, the BBC’s director of news, and Stephen Mitchell, deputy head of news, stepping aside earlier this morning.
However, the BBC had denied he walked out of his interview and said that the interview had overrun. He certainly looked like he was in a rush.
DG did not walk off from his interview with Sky. Interview overran, clashing with other interviews.
